11 months...already...

Today Luke is 11-months old. I really can't believe it. Really. I will be sending out invites to his little party in a week or so, which blows my mind.

It seems like it took forever to get him. The miscarriages. The fear. The pregnancy. The worry. And, now, his life is just flying by. It really is bittersweet.


So, on this special day, here are some pics of his favorite things at 11 months...playing with Matchbox cars, eating Mum-Mums and drinking from his new cup...











On a completely different note...I won a blog giveaway from Boyd's Crazy Mama (Nicolle). And, we just got the box full of goodies! Luke loved the red tissue paper, and may have digested a bit, but look at what was inside!! The softest slipper-socks ever, some yummy candles, Valentine's decorations, candy and more. Plus, my favorite, a sweet pic of Boyd.

It was such a nice surprise. Thank you, Nicolle!

He is too cute for words. Those little eyes. They are amazing.

I was just wondering if the box came, and then I saw your blog. I'm glad you like it!! I think Boyd would have done the same thing, eaten the tissue paper.

I know what you mean, it's so bittersweet to see your babies growing up. I was sitting here this morning trying to come up with an idea for Boyd's 1 year b-day invitation, and I looked back at his birth pics and cried! :)

Luke is sooo cute! We tried those baby Mum-Mums but Boyd won't eat them yet. I just love Luke drinking from the straw!

My little guy (about same age) loves his Matchbox cars, too. And Graham crackers.

Hi, I saw your blog mentioned on YaYa's post yesterday and thought I'd give your blog a looksee. I'm very sorry to hear of your miscarriages. I am a bereaved parent myself. :( I am glad you were able to successfully have a "rainbow" baby, and he is adorable.

Great pictures! He's really cute. I saw you from Yaya's stuff.

I'm so sorry about your miscarriages. I don't really know what to say because I know that my words will not change everything.

Don't give up and don't lose hope. If you need someone, I'm just here.

Hey!

OK, Luke is gorgeous. Seriously. When is his birthday? Eli's is March 28th...he would have been two.

Love your blog! Can't wait til I can check it out without a wailing baby on my shoulder!
